The Lake…Is our common, front yard element..
People are still bathing and washing boats in lakes ..,adding nutrients…under the PERCEIVED idea that Bio Degradable Soap is ok .
The nutrients that we add to the lakes- especially phosphorous- are a major water quality problem. These extra nutrients cause excessive plant growth and the algae build-up you see on your boat’s hull and along shorelines. If we don’t cut down on nutrient loading, we’ll have cloudy water, unpleasant tastes and odours, and a lot fewer fish. A very good description by MLA
Bio Degradable Soap best described by the link here …Muskoka Watershed.
The bad news first… any USA made boat crossing the boarder by the dealer or consumer before April 30, 2019, does not qualify for a rebate at this time.
The good news….any boat built after that date is free from regulatory duties of 10%
Good job …NMMA Canada and the Canadian Marine Trades Associations
Bryozoans picture , about 25 mm high, on the side on my dock a few years ago. ..and usually repeating every summer. The coral of fresh water lakes.
Research is being done on this harmless plankton eating prehistoric deal.. for cancer cures.
The colonies start with a single near microscopic zooid, which asexually reproduces until it’s got an entire army of clones to hang out with.
Bryozoans are usually an indicator of good water quality, and should not be disturbed or removed from the water.
OK..last post on this topic…
